COVID-19 has brought an increase in domestic violence

 - COVID-19 - Oct 21 SHARE ON:

The coronavirus pandemic has caused a number of external problems beyond its actual health drawbacks. 

One of the main problems is the surge in domestic violence around the world as a result of isolation, as many victims of domestic abuse are forced to stay inside with their abusers. The United Nations have called this ever-increasing issue a ‘shadow pandemic’.

Malta has a 179 helpline for anyone suffering any kind of abuse which requires an urgent response.

Large crowds spotted at Champions League match

 - COVID-19 - Oct 21 SHARE ON:

The Champions League opening day fixture of Renne vs. Krasnodar would seem like a typical COVID-era football game, or so one would think. 

A peculiar number of football fans were spotted at the French stadium as the home team of Rennes took on Russian-side Krasnodar. 

This comes after UEFA’s recent loosening of restrictions which made it permissible to accept 30 percent of fans back into stadiums for Champions League games.

Prime Minister maintains position on immigration

 - Local - Oct 21 SHARE ON:

Malta will keep its position on immigration until a migration pact is agreed upon by the European Union. 

Abela reiterated that Malta was successfully maintaining a low number of immigrants and warned against the engagement with African countries solely for migration purposes. 

The Prime Minister also reported that the recent meetings held with Libya are aimed at strengthening business relationships rather than tackling migration.
